We would like to congratulate Raphaël Lefèvre on winning the third Bill Gates Sr. Prize for his outstanding work on Middle Eastern politics. The Prize was established by the Gates Cambridge Trustees in June 2012, and gives Scholars the opportunity to nominate a fellow Scholar for their achievements. He was awarded at the Prize reception at Downing College arranged by Professor Barry Everitt, provost of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship.
Raphaël has very generously donated the prize money to Relief & Reconciliation for Syria, a charity aiding Syrian refugees in North Lebanon, providing education and shelter. The full article can be found here on the GATES Cambridge site. Well done Raphaël!
